Petition of Stoke-on-Trent City Council - Stop the Bedroom Tax

The bedroom tax is an ideological attack on the poorest and most vulnerable in society. Over 660,000 households are set to be affected by the Bedroom Tax with around two thirds containing a person with disabilities. In Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme over 4500 households will be affected. Households will see a cut in housing benefit by 14% for 1 unoccupied bedroom and 25% for 2 unoccupied bedrooms. The average cut will be £14 per week (£728 per year). We the undersigned call on Stoke-on-Trent City Council to publicly condemn the Bedroom Tax and to promise there will be no evictions in the city as a result of the effects of the tax.
We oppose the Bedroom Tax - No Evictions!
Petition to be returned to Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
